    I worked at Groupon full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Young environment
    Pay is decent
    Easy to get promotions (if you're in the right circle)

    Cons

    Unprofessional HR policies
    Unprofessional and inexperience senior management
    Mircomanagement

    I am not joking but this place is like a circus ran by cowboy's. I was working out of the Australian HQ in Sydney for 4 months and ran for my life towards the end.
    The place is poorly managed yet they constantly rant on about how successful they are. HR Department is unprofessional and don't care about staff well being, their focus is to cover up the senior management's inadequacy.
    The CEO and COO are extremely unprofessional and immature. Clearly not a good fit for the job but they know how to deliver the lip service to Andrew Mason to keep their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management in Chicago needs to clean up the Australian operations before the situation worsen's. Too many mates from the inner circle get the promotions and other talent are left behind.

    I worked at Groupon as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    talented people when business was starting up, great atmosphere, dynamic and challenging. highly entrepreneurial. lots of responsibility. great brand name and huge business growth.

    Cons

    business model unsustainable, cut throat sales management. taking advantage of cheap labour through excessive use of interns of all ages - good for interns - bad for full timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    revise business model which is unsustainable, think about customers and clients welfare more.
